Beacons Fall in Season Opener to Miami
Leah Earnest scored nine points and grabbed four rebounds Wednesday.

The visiting Miami RedHawks spoiled the Valpo women’s basketball season opener Wednesday evening at the ARC, as the visitors claimed an 85-60 victory.

How It Happened

  • The teams traded 3-pointers on their respective first possessions and inside baskets the second time down the floor.
  • Miami then scored the next seven in a row to take the lead for good.
  • The RedHawks extended their lead to 23-14 at the end of the first quarter.
  • Valpo cut the deficit to seven points with the first basket of the second period before the RedHawks went on an 8-0 run.
  • The Miami lead was 48-26 at halftime and 69-36 at the end of the third quarter.
  • The Beacons outscored Miami 24-16 over the final 10 minutes.

  • Redshirt senior Carie Weinman (Glenview, Ill./Glenbrook South [Denver]) led the Valpo offense with 12 points on Wednesday.
  • Sophomore Leah Earnest (Stevens Point, Wis./SPASH) went 4-of-6 from the floor — a career high for field goals made — for nine points, while senior Maya Dunson (Dayton, Ohio/Wayne [Loyola]) added nine points as well and matched a career best with three assists.
  • Senior Shay Frederick (Greenville, Wis./Hortonville) tallied eight points and tied for game-high honors with four assists, while sophomore Lauren Gunn (Fishers, Ind./Lawrence North) shot 3-for-4 for seven points.
